Forced to Flee

Forced to Flee was inspired by one woman’s escape from Syria and her ongoing effort to find a safe home for herself and her family. Our personal connection has humanized the abastraction of the humanitarian crisis of so many people forced to flee their homes and countries of birth. With this series I hope to communicate her struggle, courage and tenacity.
